What is so hard to understand about this?
Rahm Emanuel helped cover up the murder of Laquan McDonald. Covering up a murder is disqualifying for public leadership.
This is not about the “visibility” of a post. It is shameful and concerning that he is even being considered. https://t.co/P28C0E4fYP
The Democratic Party used BLM to win an election, immediately blamed it for not winning enough, and is now going to support the continued career of Rahm Emanuel, who closed schools and mental health clinics, then covered up a murder to get re-elected.
It's not "infighting" to criticize Rahm Emanuel because Emanuel is not on "my side" in any sense.
If you consider someone who helped cover up the murder of Laquan McDonald a political ally, that says a lot about your politics.
Fuck Rahm Emanuel and anyone who fucks with him.
I have my doubts that Rahm Emanuel is being seriously considered for a position, but let’s be clear for posterity’s sake: His contempt for everyday people is blatant. He looks down upon the working class & any validation of his brand of politics is a death sentence for Democrats.
as someone who worked day and night to help secure Wisconsin for you and Senator Harris, I ask you to #RejectRahm.
Rahm Emanuel helped cover up the murder of a Black teenager, Laquan McDonald, while Chicago mayor.
If that isn't disqualifying, I don't know what is.
Rahm Emanuel should not be considered for ANY position in our government, insane that he is working in politics as it is. We don’t need this kind of corruption in our party.We don’t need this kind of corruption at all!
We deserve better,he deserves prison.
Turn out the lights in the Bunker, Trump.
This is OVER.
It's time to shut the hell up & go away.

In case covering up Laquan McDonald’s murder is for some reason not enough to disqualify Rahm Emanuel, he also closed half the mental health clinics in Chicago and made massive cuts to public education. His entire record is garbage.
Like the fact that Rahm Emanuel is even being CONSIDERED is reason enough to to make noise alone
Biden needs to drop consideration for #RahmEmanuel. His track record with closing mental health facilities & cover ups with police should be immediate disqualifiers. https://t.co/womfEtDmsa
Rahm's very sophisticated view of industrial policy: "Rahm Emanuel says Biden administration should help laid off retail workers 'become a computer coder'"
If there's anything I've learned from watching Bill de Blasio, Rahm Emanuel, Kasim Reed, Eric Garcetti, Muriel Bowser, and even Lori Lightfoot; being the mayor of a major American city is basically the end of your political career. You're too close to your decisions, good or bad.
Rahm Emanuel being able to be in public without people constantly throwing eggs at him is white privilege.
Rahm Emanuel, reportedly being considered for US Trade Rep, met w/Chinese officials as Chicago mayor and affirmed the importance of the relationship: "We don’t want our relationships to be influenced by the winds of where the trade and tariff battles are" https://t.co/eRdbOowpnC
Rahm Emanuel needs to be in a "less visible" position anywhere but in this administration. Seriously, @JoeBiden
, no on Emanuel in your admin at all. Not a good look.
Rahm Emanuel is one of the most deeply hated figures in American politics & Democrats are in their essence his party. Chicago City Council voted unanimously to approve a $5m settlement to McDonalds family—before the family filed suit. Buckle up for Biden. https://t.co/EldsQKt1SB
said: “I feel like it’s really easy not to hire Rahm Emanuel.” So easy. I’m not hiring Rahm Emanuel right now. Even Obama ended up there, eventually. Much better to start right off by *not* hiring Rahm Emanuel.
As a person who has existed during a Rahm Emanuel leadership: this man doesn’t care about you. He closed tens of schools and left children and teachers to fend for themselves AND COVERED UP THE LAQUAN MCDONALD SHOOTING.
He is unfit, @JoeBiden
, plz don’t do it.
Corrupt Joe Biden wants corrupt Rahm Emanuel to work in his administration.
Corrupt politicians work with other corrupt politicians.
Same people = More of the same.
I agree. @JoeBiden
Mr President-Elect please reconsider your selection of Rahm Emanuel as Secretary of Transportation. We the people, can do without a presidential administration with seedy persona given power they don’t deserve and will abuse. https://t.co/lbPebgsvcb
